Although not in the Twilight category of greatness, this book is well written and excellently read. Youths that have become a part of the "vampire craze" will be entertained.

I love this series so much I listen to it :) I love Ellen Schreibers books she is my favorite author
I downloaded this audiobook with the hopes of it being something able to lift my spirits after a hard week. And it was definitely worth it. It's true that it's not magnificent literature, but thats not really what you're asking for when you get it. Its a book that you would like to have on that specific day that your boyfriend broke up with you or you just realised how bad you are at maths. Recommended!
As a serious vampire junky, I had to buy this book. First up, I actually prefer teen vampire fiction, with a few adullt exceptions, but this book was a bit too teen even for me. While I'm sure teens won't find it a problem, I found Raven, the heroine, rather imature and overly dramatic. Her vampire obsession quickly moves from refreshing to annoying. Also, the story is a clechet in every way, from the spooky setting to the vampires themselves. The character of Alexander was what saved the book for me. He is interesting and I couldn't help but empathise with him. Also, I have to admit to having some curiosity about the rest of the series. The ending was sad, which I wasn't expecting. Basically, teens will love this book, while adults may find it a bit too superficial. Not quite the good read I was expecting.
